Can't leave it the subject where I did (undecided). I found a book in a charity shop and it seems perfect (and was only 50p). The Thirty Nine Steps by John Buchan. Just need the time to read it now. Much more relevant is I am getting work experience in an upholstery shop where payment has been a few pieces of furniture I have helped to restore. Working creatively alone, think I've found suitable work for my future!!! Also met a kind lady who said I can watch her and get some tips on furniture restoration in return for helping her upholster a piano stool. Life is really good at the moment!
